I can't believe it's getting closer to my surgery date! I have this cartilage buid-up on my right hand for 13 or possible more years. It's time to let it go. I know I created this. It's on my bow hand and I most likely created it by playing wrong. When I do play correctly, my tendant on my finger skips over this bump causing it to 'pop'. It feel so uncomfortable. My surgergy date is scheduled in 2 days, June 11, 2008! I am nervous, but also excited at the same time. I am scared because I don't know how the procedure will go and the recovery; well you know, all the normal stuff. However, I feel excited because I am actually taking care of myself. This is a big, huge deal! I usually keep a very low key about things and not pamper myself. To me, this is like pampering myself because I had this bump for so long. I would hope it would just go away. It definetely decreased in size. Now, I am taking a stand to myself and going to get rid of it for good. Everything is falling into place. I am blessed! Whoo-hoo!
